                               Life Changes............

As life begins to unfold each and every day is uncertain. One of the many blessings we have while living here on earth is to make a difference in someone’s life. Jessie Morgan Jr. has definitely touched each and every one of us in his very own way. As we begin to grow older and wiser each day, we are able to share the knowledge obtained to help others. Please continue to hold on to God's unchanging hands.  Author: Tiffany Morgan

Visitation will be held one hour prior to the 11:00 am funeral service on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church, 1105 E Main St, Benton Harbor, MI 49022.  Following the service, Jessie will be laid to rest in Crystal Springs Cemetery in Benton Harbor.  Following interment, a repast will be held at Zion event center located at 1380 E. Napier Benton Harbor Michigan.  Cruz Family Funeral Home of Osceola, Indiana has been entrusted with his care.

Jessie was employed with IPC, Alick’s Home Medical Equipment, and Ceva transportation as an independent contractor. Jessie, affectionately known as "BIG J," enjoyed his life overall. In his spare time, he enjoyed spending time with his family, listening to music, playing video games, sporting events, and romantic getaways. Big J also, enjoyed a really good meal.  He was a volunteer with the youth basketball program that Jessie III participated in. Big J brought laughter, to each and everybody he encountered. Jessie will be sorely missed. The sudden and unexpectant nature of his passing is quite difficult to understand. However, it is all according to the Lord’s pleasure. Even though we feel the tremendous feeling of sorrow, Big J would want to be remembered with happiness and a smile.
